Ward 6


A faded poem aside its bed,
numb in its sunken chest;

its flesh and bones,
its breath, the wind.

(first publication)

Yes. Can i also buy your books in Holland? I'm going to find out. :-)

I appreciate that. I do know that the publisher, Cosmopsis Books, will ship anywhere in the world from its international store.

I’m also planning a new Author’s Press Series. The first volume will be ready soon, in a print edition and as an eBook.

“Stage” is okay — and besides, what’s wrong with creating a new meaning every now and then? I see you do that with your paintings quite often!

Thank you William, i go to the international store. And e-book is nice, but i like your work so much that i want the printed editions. So i can quietly read it anywhere i like. My favourite poets are Baudelaire and Aafjes, and now i've a new favourite on the list, you. :-) And also found on blogspot: Appolinaires tattoo. Perhaps you know his work.

No, but I just found it and will spend some time there. Thank you. And I’m glad to hear you feel that way about books. Considering your lovely artwork, I’m not surprised.
